Ignoring Child Rape in Britain
In response to the release of the Manchester inquiry results, Mabs Hussain, Head of Specialist Crime for the Greater Manchester Police, said: "We accept that authorities fell short of doing all they could to protect and support the child victims of sexual exploitation." No, the Manchester police didn't fall short. They stonewalled. They lied. They saw British children being taken off by Muslim men to be drugged and raped and, with a cowardice beyond imagining, turned their back on the victims. When a few brave souls in their ranks tried to investigate grooming gangs, the higher-ups skimped on funding, stalled, shelved findings, caused the minutes of meetings to disappear, and, when they were able to get away with it, actually closed down an investigation of the grooming gangs.
